/reports/2021/10/the-pla-and-intelligent-warfare-preliminary-analysis
The widespread adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and autonomous weapon systems portends a new revolution in military affairs. The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is now conceptualizing a future battlefield environment dominated by AI and autonomy, which it calls “intelligent warfare.” This paper explores the PLA concept of intelligent warfare, according to articles by writers from the People’s Republic of China (PRC).
